Find a legislative forum in your area

Throughout the session, usually on Fridays and Saturdays, state legislators hold short meetings (or “coffees”) with constituents in their home districts.

This is an important space to engage with your legislator face-to-face, raise up issues important to you, and call on them to stand on the side of the people.

Why go to your local legislative meetings?

We want to be a powerful fight-back force across the state this session. We need to be in front of as many legislators in their home districts, talking with them directly about our top legislative priorities.

As in years past, if you can’t make it to the Statehouse, attending meetings with legislators in your area is a great way to lift up our People & Planet First Agenda. Share your story, ask pointed questions, and it’s a great way to meet like-minded folks and tell them about Iowa CCI Action!  AND, don’t forget to report back what you hear.

Here are questions to ask your legislators?

  • Will you support a moratorium on factory farms construction or expansion? Push them on clean water and local control.
  • What are you doing to fix Iowa’s Medicaid mess? Share why you want guaranteed healthcare for all Iowans. 
  • Will you block any anti-immigrant measures? Let’s make Iowa  a welcoming state!
  • Will you stop bad energy power grab SSB3093 and HSB595 that aims to slash energy efficiency, kill solar jobs in Iowa and deregulate energy giants? We need more energy efficiency and savings for ratepayers, not less!
